For every professional woman who wants to get ahead - but feels she is at an impasse - NICE GIRLS DON'T GET THE CORNER OFFICE comes to the rescue. Although it's less threatening and more politically correct for women to point the finger outwardly when assessing why they are overlooked for promotions and assignments for which they are superbly qualified, the real answers may lie inward. In this book, Dr Lois Frankel, an internationally recognised corporate coach and author, reveals the 101 self-sabotaging behaviours women learn as girls - behaviours and habits that are now holding them back in the workplace, such as couching statements as questions, tilting your head when you speak, waiting to be noticed and pinching company pennies. From executive to entry level, every woman needs to know what she is doing to subconsciously sound, look, act, market herself, and/or be treated like a 'girl'. This book will help women to become aware of when and how they are damaging their careers and it will give them the advice and tips they need to help replace these self- defeating behaviours with more effective ones - and finally claim the corner office they so richly deserve.
Lois P. Frankel, Ph.D. is President of Corporate Coaching International. She is the author of several books, including Overcoming Your Strengths, which was named by Fast Company magazine as 'the best unsung business book of the year' in 1997.
